WHERE WE ARE
Scandal's Nobody Likes
Babies aired February 7, and ended with Olivia, the "fixer"
of Olivia Pope & Associates, riddled with guilt and shame for helping to rig the election for Fitz to become president and now also devastated because he has dissed her (to put it mildly).
The next Scandal episode, to be aired February 14, will be ten months later.
During those months, Olivia has become concerned about her drinking and asks Huck to take her to an AA meeting. As she sobers up and starts thinking more clearly, she begins to see how she needs to be fixed herself, from the inside out, if she is to continue to help fixing others.
Alika is an elder, an African-American woman who has long sobriety and good recovery in AA. In the outside world Alika is a political activist. She is played by Cicely Tyson.
